I was born and raised in Texas and was saved and filled with the Holy Spirit at an early age. I was born with a heart condition and have Cerebral Palsy. I have always been a huge football fan but because I couldn’t play when I was younger, I spent most of my time reading the Bible, lot’s of books and watching preachers.
Growing up my favorites were Pastor Rod Parsley, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and Jerry Savelle. After high school I attended an online school of ministry and began working in the media and mailing department of a healing ministry. From there I went on to be trained in and minister deliverance with Don Dickerman Ministries.
My journey with Jesus has lead me through various parts of the Church. I grew up in a Pentecostal denomination and later on my family went to a Charismatic Calvinist church. I spent time in a holiness denomination and another Pentecostal denomination. In all of those things I kept going back to the message of faith and the goodness of God that I heard from the Copeland’s and Jerry Savelle. I am thankful for every part of the journey and the ministry training I have received. I’ve been blessed to work for two different ministries, serve as a youth leader, serve at youth camps, and minister at different churches I have been a part of.
My hearts desire is to one day pastor a church. To find a group of people I can not only share the Word with but life with. To see generations grow up in the church and to reach a neighborhood, a community, and our city for Jesus. All the while enjoying life with one another, and some college and professional football.
BELIEFS & TEACHINGS
My journey has taken me through various parts of the Body of Christ and for that I am grateful. If you want to nail down my beliefs, you can look at various church creeds and Martin Luther’s 95 Thesis. My theological foundations are found in Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, and the holiness teachings of John Wesley. If you want to see how that applies to our everyday lives you can find the various promises in the Bible relating to family, health, finances, work, and good deeds.
I like to study and teach from a Hebrew perspective and glean from certain church leaders of old. I am a proud theology nerd but at the end of the day we have to apply all that theology practically with Jesus at the very center of our lives.
Every time we read a Scripture we have an opportunity to see something new. The Bible is alive and Jewish wisdom says there are seventy views to each verse in the Bible. No matter if you’re new to the Christian life or if you’ve been walking with Jesus for fifty years, we can always see something new as we live by faith, walk in love, share the gospel and believe for the impossible.
Ezra 7:10 NASB “For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the LORD and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.”
1 Corinthians 2:2 AMPC “For I resolved to know nothing (to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing, and to be conscious of nothing) among you except Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and Him crucified.”
